Minutes:

The Executive Member for Income & Prosperity presented the report which sought to introduce an ARP wide Policy for all seven partners to address recent changes in legislation.

 

The Chairman asked if any of the Partner Councils had already approved the proposal and the ARP Strategic Manager (Revenues) advised that West Suffolk and Fenland had already done so.

 

OPTIONS

 

1.     To approve the Policy set out in Appendix A

2.     Not to approve the Policy set out in Appendix A and to continue using existing Policies.

 

REASONS

 

1.     To provide a consistent policy across all seven partners of the ARP.  Continuing with separate policies would not be efficient given the shared provision of Revenues collection across the partnership.

2.     To update the policy in this area in order to make clear to customers what the recovery process entails.

 

RESOLVED that the Policy set out in Appendix A to the report be approved.
